LIBERTY, March 9, 2012 - Thursday evening at approximately 8:00 PM the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office began a search in the Tarkington / Cleveland / Plum Grove areas of Liberty County for a missing 54 year old man identified as Dennis Rogers.

Mr. Rogers, while 54 years old, sustained a serious head injury approximately four years ago and now has the mental capacity of a 9 year old. Mr. Rogers did have a cell phone on his person. The LCSO, working with the cellular carrier, pinged Mr. Rogers cell phone until approximately 1:00 AM Friday morning and there has been no signal since.

The LCSO contacted the U.S. Coast Guard who sent an aircraft to assist in search last night until nearly 3:00 AM Additionally, numerous volunteers and the Tarkington VFD arrived and assisted the LCSO in this search. Due to severe weather, dangerous terrain, nighttime conditions and fuel, the search had to stop temporarily.
